0 Best Alice Springs Attractions Every Tourist Must See

Known locally as ‘The Alice’, this town is at the centre of Australia. Made famous by Neville Shute’s book ‘A Town Like Alice’, Alice Springs has progressed into a modern town divided by a dry river bed, the Todd River. The Alice must be the only place in the world that has a boat race without a river! However, sometimes, in the wet season, the Todd River does have water and even floods.

Top Attractions

The top Alice Springs attraction is the fascinating and unusual landscape. The Outback is at your doorstep when you are in Alice, and it is easy to see it all from the Anzac Hill Lookout. Anzacs are the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps who are remembered with the memorial on this hill. Simpsons Gap is another land formation that is well worth a visit. The MacDonnell Ranges are very handy to Alice Springs and offer some interesting country to explore.

Kids & Family

The kids will love a visit to the Kangaroo Sanctuary or the Reptile Centre. Learn about the history of Alice with a visit to Alice Springs Telegraph Station and find the original ‘springs’ that gave Alice Springs its name. Kids love trains and the train that runs through Alice from Adelaide to Darwin is known as The Ghan. Visit the Ghan museum to learn about traveling one of the world’s greatest railway journeys.

Aboriginal Culture

There is no place like Alice to shop for Aboriginal art and there are plenty of artworks available. Explore the Jila Arts, Talapi or perhaps spend your day at the Aboriginal Australian Culture Centre. Expand your day into the evening with Sounds of Starlight, a show focusing on the Didgeridoo, an aboriginal instrument made from hollow wood. They also offer lessons on learning to play the didgeridoo.

Day Tours

The most popular day tour from Alice Springs would be a flight to Ayers Rock (Uluru). However, there are plenty of other amazing landscape features that are worth a visit. Kings Canyon is not too far, while the Devils Marbles are not to be missed. If you prefer to stay closer to town, try the Alice Springs Desert Park for a close-up of the Outback.
